Chrissy Teigen is nice at meals, notably flavorful fare that scratches indulgent itches. It is smart then that she would crack the code of what’s—no less than to me—one of the vital craveable potato chip flavors: jalapeño.
As Elan Gale factors out, this magic, spicy mud can be utilized not only for home made crisps, however to just about any meals (very like our beloved tomato salt):
That “thriller spice” Teigen is referring to is probably torula yeast, a vegetarian-friendly powder which provides and umami. (This smoked one tastes kinda like bacon.) In the event you don’t have a meals dehydrator, you possibly can nonetheless avail your self of jalapeño powder. Simply slice up the peppers, place them in a single layer on a cookie sheet, and prepare dinner them in your oven at 200℉ (or decrease) with the oven door barely open till they’re utterly dry. Allow them to cool a bit, then pulverize them right into a positive powder utilizing a mortar and pestle.
In the event you want to make jalapeño salt as an alternative of a pure pepper powder, merely coat the pepper slices with kosher salt earlier than dehydrating, then pulverize the salt-crusted slices in a meals processor. Both seasoning might be tossed with contemporary home made potato chips, stirred into bitter cream to make a spicy dip, or, you understand, sprinkled on any meals that wants some salty warmth, which is just about each meals.
